Forum: opensource_movies Subject: Adding Movies to Past Uploads

I have a few different formats of some movies I've uploaded that were only in Quicktime format. Is there a good way to make this accessible from the existing movie pages? I have my movies now in mp4, divx and avi formats.

Thanks.

You can use the replace item dialog:

..to add movies to an existing item. But you will need to upload all the movies again, _plus_ the new ones - sorry about this. Still, it's quite possible.

I want to do this to, but one of my uploads got cut off halfway, and i can't restart it. how do i delete unwanted files out of the folder i created with the same name as my already uploaded movie. i can't make a new folder to upload to because it has to have the same name as my already uploaded media.

If you're using FTP, it should allow you to delete. Otherwise, you can upload the file again and choose the 'Overwrite' option, I would imagine.

thanks. i switched to an FTP client that would let me overwrite (FireFTP) but still can't delete files and folders created/uploaded erroneously.
